The Home of 'Ziyal' Gambian Pouched Rats

UKpouchies was established by founder Lesley Reed in 2007. Lesley has kept and bred rats of various types since 1991.
She now runs UKpouchies which is a free information site about Pouched Rats, there is also a free to join fourm where you
can talk to owners, breeders and enthusiasts alike, just click on the link at the top of this page.

Lesley also provides a free consultation and advice service to anyone wanting to learn more or discover about Pouched Rats
as domesticated pets, if we dont have the information you require then we may know a specialist who does. UKpouchies
occasionally rehomes any unwanted or unsocialised Pouched Rats and does also occasionally breed and train Pouched Rats
which are supplied to zoo's, wildlife parks and also private pet owners.
